War for Children's Minds -

War for Children's Minds

«<p><strong>'<em>The War for Children's</em> <em>Minds </em>is a brilliantly clear and convincingly argued defence of liberalism in moral education. Stephen Law examines and demolishes all the arguments in favour of authoritarian ways of teaching, and shows that in spite of the insistence of popular commentators from the religious right, a liberal and rational examination and discussion of moral questions does not lead to relativism and the decay of ethical behaviour, but can in fact be the best defence against them. This book won't be read by popular journalists: they will attack it without reading it. But it should be read by every teacher, every parent, and every politician. What's more, it should form the subject for discussion in every church, synagogue, mosque, and religious youth group. It's one of the most engaging as well as one of the most necessary books that I've ever read in the field of moral education.'</strong> <em> - Philip Pullman</em><»

Behind headlines on the conflict in Iraq and global terrorism, a much deeper battle is raging over children and the values they should adopt. This work exposes the weaknesses of arguments calling for a return to authoritarian styles of moral education. Les mer

Behind headlines on the conflict in Iraq and global terrorism, a much deeper battle is raging over children and the values they should adopt. This work exposes the weaknesses of arguments calling for a return to authoritarian styles of moral education. It shows that thinking for oneself does not mean that all moral points of view are equally good.
